The best drink holder is a "Lil Sucker"!

The beer holder NRS sells is pretty good, but the corners of the mounting bracket are sharp as hell so you need to file them down. The coosie with the flap keeps out most of the river water and stays in the bracket 95% of the time. I don't think it's worth the $20, but whatever.

I wrap velcro (fuzzie side) around my coozie and slap the other side any where I want, cooler, pfd, dry box, back of chair. A bit of urethane wader patch keeps it held fast wherever you want to keep a cold one.

careful not to wrap the coozie too tight or your beer wont come out.

Here's some pics of a DIY beer holder I made last season.

It was pretty simple to make:

- Set bottle and koozie on counter. Set sharpie on top of Koozie with tip on bottle and rotate bottle to mark a straight cut line
- Cut along line and cut a small slit near bottom of bottle for a strap
- Drill or cut a few holes in bottom of bottle for drainage

I also tried using a spare water bottle cage, mounted in the same manner as this holder, but with thicker koozies, it's harder to get can in and out. Water bottle cages work fine with thinner, neoprene koozies.

I also got some cheap can toppers (with flip-up lid over drinking hole) from amazon to keep the beer in the can and water out.

Nice riverjunky. I have one just like that made by river connection and its made of steel. Its no more of a shin buster than an ammo can. I usually rig it a little loose so it will move in the event of hitting it.
